10 of Diana’s classic dresses up for auction

– If dresses could talk, this dark navy, figure-hugging velvet number would have the best stories to tell.

Princess Diana wore it on state visits, at royal banquets and most memorably to a gala dinner at the White House in 1985 when she took to the dance floor with Hollywood star John Travolta.

The Victor Edelstein gown will go under the hammer at a vintage fashion auction in London on March 19, along with nine other of Diana’s lavish evening dresses. In total, Kerry Taylor Auctions say the sale is expected to raise more than $1.2 million.

The dresses, all in the signature 1980s look – padded shoulders, puffed sleeves, crushed velvet – are snapshots in the glamorous, jet-setting life of the late princess, who died in a 1997 car crash. Kerry Taylor Auctions declined to disclose the identity of the sellers for the dresses.
